Performance marketing has seen exponential growth in recent years. eMarketer reports a 13.5% lift in affiliate spending for 2016, which accounts for roughly 7% of total digital ad spend in the US. With the potential to reach $6.82 billion in spend by 2020, it’s no mystery why more social content creators and media companies are looking to get in on the action. And while the breadth of publishers continues to expand, so do new categories and verticals, increased feature opportunities and more monetized content.
For advertisers, this makes the already arduous task of searching for the right partnerships increasingly problematic. Pepperjam Network has resolved this challenge with the introduction of Optimizer.
Optimizer is Pepperjam Network’s publisher recommendation engine. The platform was developed to simplify the affiliate recruitment process, providing the best publisher suggestions for your brand to get you to market faster. Accessible to advertisers now, Optimizer offers:
